Music and Worship

St Michael’s has six bells, which are rung from the ground floor. The heaviest bell weighs 10 cwt. Practice nights are normally on Mondays between 6.30pm and 7.30pm and the bellringers are always happy to welcome visitors, whether they are existing ringers or have never touched a bell rope in their lives. Anyone over the age of eleven, who wishes to learn, will be given full training and there is no need to worry because no-one is left alone until they can safely handle a bell by themselves. If you fancy a new challenge, why not drop in and have a go. The bellringers would be happy to meet you.

We are pleased to be hosting a concert by Thurmaston Marching Brass (Thurmaston Scout and Guide Band) on Sunday 9 December 2018. All welcome, but advance (free) ticket is essential. Please ask at church or at the Scouts / Guides.

Organ

The choir at St Michael’s lead the singing at our Sunday morning services (except the All Age / Family Service).
We are keen to recruit people of all ages to join the choir. If you are interested in joining, please ask at church.

CAP Money is a simple, yet highly effective money management course that teaches people budgeting skills and a cash-based system that really works. This course will help anyone to get more in control of their finances, so they can save, give, and prevent debt.

St. Michael & All Angels, Thurmaston has partnered with Christians Against Poverty to offer CAP Money courses in our community. The service we offer is completely free.

Please call the Vicar, the Rev Tim Day on 0116 348 6896 or email him to find out when the next course is running near to you.
